COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s been less than a year since we released our four core beers in cans, and we’re ecstatic to announce a new addition to the flock. This isn’t a seasonal release, like the Autumnation of last fall or Diesel, still going ’round this winter. It isn’t our upcoming spring seasonal can, either. It’s a never-before-released, big beer in a slim, 12 oz. can with a potent burst of hops and as strong as an ox: Resin. We zeroed in on the botanical structure of the hop cone to get to the essence of this beer. When hops are at their peak maturity, their cores swell up with a sticky, golden, resinous substance that is the flavor you crave from an IPA. WIth an IBU of 103 and ABV of 9.1%, Resin can be loosely described as a double IPA — but rarely do Sixpoint beers adhere to any strict style demands.

Nice resinous aroma some pine some citrus, grapefruit and rind. Really beautiful glowing honey with slightly off white head holding at a finger. Already leaving lacing as it subsides. Taste is bitter, some citrus rind, but mostly just sort of anonymously bitter. Not getting a lot in the way of intricacies. Meh.

CAN 355 ML from CH-303. Look: cloudy orange, off-white frothy head. Aroma: rich malts and hops. The hop profile is sweet citrus and tart fruit with minty cough drop resins, creamy toffee malts. Taste: juicy, string and balanced - tart fruity sweetness, moderate and soft bitterness, s little phenolic spice in the bitter finish.

Hopmaestro (110) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2014
Aroma is beautiful and rich from flowers, fruit and thick sweet malts. The taste is divine, and I handed it over to the Mrs. to make sure I wasn’t imagining from overexcitement. It is sweet, round, thick, dank, sticky all at once, and the aftertaste from ripe mandarines and oranges is just perfect.

rayaron (238) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - OCT 14, 2014
Can sample at a tasting at Beer & Beyond, Tel Aviv. Slightly hazy golden with medium off-white head, nice lacing. Aroma of onion, hoppy, a bit fruity (citrus). Nice hoppy bitterness, grassy, "green", a bit malty, well balanced, creamy. Lively carbonation. Medium body. Sticky bitter aftertaste. Excellent.

Piney, sweet, and full of hops. Love this IPA. A clear appearance with just the right amount if Amber haze. Little to no after taste but the taste is memorable! Need.... More ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
